Virtual NFL Draft will double as coronavirus relief fundraiser

NFL Draft

As the NFL presses ahead with the draft, it will use the event to try to raise money to fight the coronavirus pandemic.

The NFL announced Wednesday that it is setting up a “draft-a-thon” to raise money for six charities that are working to offer relief for those impacted by the virus.

Fans will be able to donate to a central fund during all three days of the event.

The league’s unusual draft has proven controversial in NFL circles, but this aspect won’t be. It’s good that the NFL is using its platform to raise money for virus relief. Given how many people are likely to watch with nothing else going on, they should raise quite a bit of money.
